Was it MRSA? My friend who has MRSA made the mistake of going to Costa Rica and getting dental implants a few months ago. The dentist put a hole in her sinus cavity, and she ended up coming back with meningitis and now has an abscess on her spinal column. She has been getting vancomycin infusions and was getting metronidazole in the hospital.

It wasn't MRSA, but I do not recall the exact bacteria the doctor said it was and right now I don't feel like digging through all that paperwork to find the name.
The doctor did not have any indication where I may have picked this up - it could have even come with the original hip prosthetic that I got back it 2007.
The vancomycin infusions are a pain in the ass and they make me feel shitty, but if that is what kills the infection...

The alternative is NOT an option.
